Updating tonight’s earlier news… pending a physical, Zack Greinke is a Los Angeles Dodger.
Just think on that for a minute, won’t you? Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke. Two great tastes that taste great together.
Gina Miller reports that the deal is 6/$147m, which is wonderful. Eric Stephen adds that the $24.5 average annual value is the highest ever by a pitcher, which comes as no surprise. To be honest, I’m surprised he didn’t break $150m, so I’m not sure how any Dodger fan could be anything but thrilled.
We know A.J. Ellis is, anyway:
Not sure who’s more excited about @dodgers signing Greinke:AJ the catcher of another Ace or AJ the hitter who doesn’t have to face him.

More to come when I’m not in the middle of a holiday party. Celebrate!
